important information Covid-19
Due to the current situation and government regulations for the containment of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year's Summer Night Concert will take place under changed circumstances, with the safety of concert visitors having the highest priority.

The 2020 Summer Night Concert will be made available to the public primarily by means of the television broadcast on ORF2 and 3SAT. Due to the regulations for the containment of the Covid-19 pandemic, unrestricted access to the concert event on September 18, 2020, will not be possible. Beginning at 6 PM on September 18, 2020, the park will no longer be open to the public, with some sections of the park closing even earlier.
Thanks to a generous gesture on the part of the Austrian Federal Government to forego many seats, it will be possible for us to make a small number of seats available to the general population.
Despite all of the challenging circumstances, the Vienna Philharmonic wishes to send a positive signal with the performance of this concert.
